The proportion of people living in extreme poverty in Hungary has dropped from 23.4 percent to 8.7 percent in the past decade, the Ministry of Human Capacities (EMMI) said on Thursday, citing Eurostat data.
Hungary jumped from 6th from the bottom of the European Union list to 9th from the top.
The number of people without enough savings to make emergency replacements of eg, a washing machine or refrigerator has halved, while 2.5 million more people can now afford a week on holiday.
